Over the past 9 months Entropics has hosted some of most interesting contemporary poets and writers from around the UK and beyond. This month we welcome the wonderful Vahni Capildeo, whose books include Utter (Peepal Tree, 2013), Simple Complex Shapes (Shearsman, 2015), and Measures of Expatriation (Carcanet; Forward Poetry Prizes Best Collection; T.S. Eliot Prize nomination).
An ex-medievalist, Vahni has worked in lexicography, academia, and culture for development. Her performances engage with Euripides, Shakespeare, and Martin Carter. Recent non-fiction appears in PN Review, adda (Commonwealth Writers) and Granta. She is a Douglas Caster Cultural Fellow at the University of Leeds. This event is organised in conjunction with the Human Worlds Festival.
See the Entropics blog to read our interview with Vahni, as well as past poets who have read.
Entropics is organised by Sarah Hayden, and supported by the Department of English at the University of Southampton. These events are made possible by funding from the University of Southampton Education Enhancement Fund. Come along to this free event in Southampton’s Mettricks Old Town (an accessible venue) for an evening of poetry, discussion, and maybe a drink or two. All are welcome!
